help for a high school unicyclist?

My brand new seat was slashed today by some high school punks! I take my
unicycle everywhere -it’s my main source of transportation. I ride it to my high
school. I’ve been locking it outside but the seat’s been slashed on seveal
occasions. Is there a case (like a cello case) designed for a reg. uni? Or some
other way I could prevent this vandalism? Is it OK to wheel it around to my
classes? What did you all do as high school unicyclists? And what do you do
about those buggers who want to try the unicycle? Should I let people try, or
could they hurt my unicycle?

Squid. Thanks for answering my qustions!

Useless suggestion: Slash the punks. The world obviously does not need them.
Otherwise, bring the uni into the school. See if you have a teacher who is cool
enough to let you store it in a safe place. This I did on a few occasions when I
was in H.S.

If you live in Northern California, I volunteer to take care of your punks
myself. I absolutely hate vandals!

I find it astonishing that anyone would slash a unicycle seat. I figure the
punks would be so amazed they’d leave it alone. Oh, well.

My practice has always been to find a juggling teacher (there’s one in every
high school) or at least a Cool Teacher and ask them if they’ll let you store
your unicycle in thier room.

I tend to just pick mine up and take it with me - there’s a suitable sized gap
just behind the door of our main lecture theatre, and the chance of someone
wandering into a physics lecture on the off chance that they can steal a
unicycle is ( I believe) fairly slim.

yeah i can imagine it hppening (squigglly lines appear and a hypothetical situation appears ) hello Mr insert name of teacher im going to skip class today oo would you look at that a unicyle im just going to “borrow it” bye all.

I always let people try mine, why would they damage it any more than you did when you learnt to ride on it? It displays unicyclists in a positive light if you do so, and you might even get one or two converts.

I usually find with people who want to try my unicycle always have to lower the seat, and one guy even put food all over it, the dirty bugger, so usually be polite but firm in saying no<
so yeah, find a cool teacher, who would let u store it
“My unicycle is my main mode of transport”
Bloody oath, if only life was so simple, good for u man
Good luck

I put mine in my locker.

Let’s see… this thread was started a decade ago when I was in middle school.

So after putting on my time warp cap and thinking in 1995 terms my middle school brain can’t think of how to deal with high school vandals. Tell mommy?

wow, that’s an old thread!

I’m sure there’s some good in revisiting this thread, but I doubt we’re helping Gwenneth…she’s graduated from college by now!!!

Yeah mine fits in my locker too.
